A couple who tied the knot on their first date in Las Vegas say they’re “inseparable” and are even talking about starting a family.

Paul Edwards, 36, who married 34-year-old Sarah Elliott on Christmas Day after meeting face to face for the first time at Gatwick Airport the previous day, said they’re even “comfortable” using the bathroom at the same time.

They got hitched 12 days after matching on dating app Bumble on December 13.

The couple spoke on the phone for the first time on December 22 and the next day they decided to get married.

After meeting for the first time at Gatwick on Christmas Eve, wearing their full wedding outfits, they boarded a plane to Las Vegas to get married. Paul, from Chichester, even got down on one knee to pop the question.

The lovebirds flew back into Gatwick on Sunday afternoon following their whirlwind wedding – and described their big day as “perfect.”

Sarah, originally from New Zealand, and Paul held hands throughout their entire stay in Vegas where they wed in front of the famous Fountains of Bellagio.

Now they are looking forward to married life and plan to move in together immediately.

They were heading to Brighton for Paul to meet the first of Sarah’s friends.

And they will begin searching for rental properties straight away, close to where Sarah works as a nanny and just an hour’s drive from Paul’s new electrician course.

Sarah said: “The wedding was so romantic - it was the perfect day.

“Our wedding kiss was our first and there aren’t many couples who can say that.

“We kissed in front of the Bellagio; the fountains went off and Christmas music was playing in the background with bells ringing – I even got bells on my wedding day.

“The minister kept telling us how strong a connection we had and told us to stay cute and to stay adorable.

“Tourists were cheering and then we walked around the city in our wedding outfits taking it all in. It was magical.

“We share so many of the same values and passions, we are both ambitious and want to support each other to be the best we can be.

“We’ve both said we want children in the future– it will have to be through IVF, but Paul and I already discussed that before the engagement. I am also very excited to meet Paul’s two daughters. They will be my girls too now as you don’t just marry a person, you marry into the family.”

Paul, who has two daughters, aged 13 and 15, is also looking forward to living with Sarah who he described as “a beautiful, wonderful person”.

He said: “Some interesting things I’ve learned about Sarah in the six days we’ve spent together is that her favourite meal is plain rice and mince meat – just that.

“She also loves taking baths and we are even comfortable using the bathroom at the same time.

“We can just be ourselves while we are getting to know one another and it feels like we have known each other for so much longer than just a few weeks.”
